Award-winning chef Neven Maguire fulfilled a long-held dream to open his first cookery school in 2014. The Neven Maguire Cookery School is located beside MacNean House & Restaurant in Blacklion, Co. Cavan. The state-of-the-art cookery school features a range of exciting cookery classes for all skill levels. Classes are fun and informal and are purposely kept small to ensure the best learning experience with individual guidance, support and assistance from Neven and his dedicated team.
Neven Maguire has turned the small, rural village of Blacklion into one of the country's top dining destinations. He and his restaurant have scooped up more awards than you could shake a spoon at. Still his approach is clear and simple – to bring the best of food using the best of fresh Irish produce to people who appreciate quality, imagination and excellence.
His passion for the best in food has won a prestigious Michelin listing for the restaurant and Trip Advisor Travellers' Choice Award named it one of the top 10 fine dining restaurants in Europe. People are happy to travel to enjoy his Sunday lunches and superb five-course dinner menu, while the nine-course tasting menu is a gastronomic delight. Menus are changed regularly to avail of seasonal produce.
